Carroll Shelby says that he uses it in all of his cars but I don't use it in mine.

That's not quite what he says. He says we put it in every car we build. That's not true either. I didn't get any in mine :|

Its suppose to soak into the metal of your crankcase and stop gunk and buildup before it happens but soaking into the metal. I'm pretty sure thats what the commercials have been saying. I too have been seeing a ton of them all of a sudden on the speed channel.

If it is so good then why don't we see race teams use it, and more testimonials.

Not sure, but a lot of shows like two guys and a garage and a few others on speed have been featuring this product on their shows. I'll stick to seafoam.

Zmax is a molybdenum compound. I've used similar stuff in rear ends before.

Very expensive staff, though. I say, keep up with your maintenance and use seafoam every once in a while. Say, every 10,000 or so. Also good gasoline from reputable gas station will help as well.

FreddieC, I see that you are from Bartlett TN, I've lived in Memphis my whole life before joining the military, spent a good bit of my time out in Millington which is where I went to high school.

I am actually from CA. I was stationed in Millington before retiring and decided to stick around. Besides, can't afford the houses back in CA anyway.
